Automation solutions specialist, Sewtec Automation, has devised and installed a bespoke robotic top-load system for the packing of flow wrapped tea bags at tea supplier Twinings' Andover factory.

Three specially designed Sewtec LX5249-2 robotic machines are packing boxes of 40, 80, 160 and 240 tea bags with minimum changeover requirements. An integrated buffer storage system is able to store up to ten minutes worth of production and reintroduce the packs during normal production, in order to maximise throughput while maintaining overall line efficiency and product quality.

The Sewtec designed pick and place robot features twin axis servo motion control for consistent and reliable operation.
